“Perfect dinner!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 July 2013

First time there and all (4) agreed we'd return. All meal selections were delicious, wine was perfect, waiter and hostess couldn't have been better...very attentive and polite. A very nice addition to Sycamore's downtown dining experience choices.

“Outstanding cuisine and serice”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 May 2013

We just enjoyed a wonderful evening at Taki's, driving from Milwaukee to visit relatives in DeKalb-Sycamore area. What a surprise to find such a gem of a restaurant with such a diverse menu. The appetizers were plentiful and fresh - assorted cheeses and olives, fresh East Coast mussels, and bruschetta were all presented elegantly. The soup du jour was a unique and flavorful split pea bisque; worth the trip alone to taste.

For main courses, we has a lamb shank in mushroom reduction sauce - simmered for more then 6 hours, and so tender. Also served were yellow perch; lightly breaded with a light white wine sauce; and a chicken mediterranian dish that was equally tastey.

I rarely post reviews, unless the dinner is extraordinary. I am posting this one because it hit that mark. Enjoy!!

“Can't Wait to Try it Again!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 April 2013

I was pleasantly surprised by how much I enjoyed my dinner at Tika's! My entree of pork served with mashed potatoes and fresh vegetables was well-prepared and delicious. The three others with me also gave their meals high marks.

Based on just the one meal, I'd say this is the best restaurant in the area! Going back tonight.

“New Mediterranean Restaurant in Sycamore”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 March 2013

We went the first night and service was a little rough. Actually our service couldn't stay away from us. Food was OK. Need to check back and see what has improved.
